READ: malala yousafzai was shot in the head and neck while on a school bus today in pakistan. she was reportedly gunned down by taliban gunmen for her stance on education equality for all girls. she had dreams of being a political activist and led a delegation of student rights’ activists at the young age of 14. Her voice & opinions were heard as early as 11 years old in a documentary entitled; “class dismissed”.
“Her father ran one of the last schools to defy Taliban orders to end female education. As an 11-year-old, Malala — named after a mythic female figure in Pashtun culture — wrote an anonymous blog documenting her experiences for the BBC. Later, she was the focus of documentaries by The New York Times and other media outlets. Ms. Yousafzai grew in prominence, becoming a powerful voice for the rights of children. In 2011, she was nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize. Later, Yousaf Raza Gilani, the prime minister at the time, awarded her Pakistan’s first National Youth Peace Prize. Mature beyond her years, she recently changed her career aspiration to politics, friends said. In recent months, she led a delegation of children’s rights activists, sponsored by Unicef, that made presentations to provincial politicians in Peshawar.”
a true definition of a QUEEN. #STOPkilling Malala Yousafzai.
